just look at the fbi statistics, although we have horrific events that occur with these guns sometimes, mostly it is pistols and handguns that are involved statistically in the crimes. if you are going to attack the murders in this country, you would attack those other guns. i'm wondering why you think it is that they'd like to go after the assault weapons at this time. >> i think lz was exactly right. there is three different conversations going on and i think they have to turn it into one big comprehensive approach. if it's only framed as an assault weapons ban, it will have a very difficult time going through congress. but, yes, you know, the president is going to have to spend the capital. he has it and he's going to have to spend it. i'm sure vice president biden, who is now pregnant with this, this is his baby, and in case we haven't noticed, he's already running for president, is going to want something done. and the problem, drew, is the issue is not going away. as cnn was covering the meetings of the vice president on the issue, they had to break away because there was yet ano

suspect should stand trial. yesterday, the fbi agent testified that james holmes rigged his apartment with explosives and trip wires and then programmed a stereo to play loud music hoping to attract attention. the investigator said a thermos of explosives was set up to spill into a frying pan containing another chemical that would then start a fire. holmes appeared without emotions at the hearing. a woman whose husband was killed in the shooting believes holmes's demeanor is all an act. >> he is faking it. i think he's in shock. i think he wants to stick to it because he knows what he's done. >> holds is accused of murdering -- holmes is accused of murdering 12 people and injuring 70 in the massacre. prosecutors are trying to prove it was premeditated. >>> coming up, diet soda danger. why the drink is being linked now to depression. >> plus, mysterious and mystical no more. captured on video for the first time ever. >> and the market opened 10 minutes ago. a quick peek at the early numbers on wall street and they look fabulous! we'll crunch the

. it could mean a shut down at the fbi, prisons might have to stop operating, courts would, of course, close. it would mean chaos, but that seems to be what they want, i guess, chaos, which i guess they'll then somehow use as leverage. is that right? >> well, apparently that is their argument. i think the problem is we've seen this movie before. it happened under gingrich's watch when clinton was president. it certainly didn't rebound to gingrich's favor. it ended up helping clinton. his poll numbers went up, and i imagine that the same thing would happen with obama. and, of course, there would be this attendant impact on the economy and attendant impact on people getting their government benefits and all sorts of things. so, again, i think the republican party talks about refashioning and rebranding and i think one of the ideas is to look at reagan. they always talk about reagan, but if you look at some of the things reagan actually did around immigration reform, for instance, this isn't a party that so far is will to do that and embrace some of those parts of reagan's legacy. >> steve, we

a listen. >> i have fbi crime statistics that come out a year late, 2011, 20 plus percent crime drop in the last nine years, real violent crime because more guns means less crime. britain took the guns 15, 16 years ago, tripling of your overall violent crime. true we have a higher gun violence level, but overall muggings, stabbings, deaths, those men raped that woman in india to death with an iron rod four feet long. you can't ban the iron rods. the guns, the iron rods, piers, didn't do it. the tyrants did it. hitler took the guns. stalin took the guns. mao took the guns. fidel castro took the guns. i'm here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms! doesn't matter how many lemmings you get out there on the street, begging for them to have their guns taken. we will not relinquish them. do you understand? that's why you're going to fail and the establishment knows no matter how much propaganda the republican rhee public will rise again when you attempt to take our guns. my family and the texas revolution against santa ana, my family was at the core on both

harzi, again had been arrested and held for several months. the fbi actually interrogated him back in late december. but as a witness to the attack on benghazi, not necessarily a prime suspect. when caveat to his release is he does have to remain near the capital of tunisia in case the court needs to get healed of 4i78. some of the cameras at the consulate did capture of the faces of some people, but very few have you questioned as suspects, primarily because the libyan government is to weak and some of the militia groups that may have been involved are very, very strong in that country. there's been a lot of criticism, you know, that president obama promised during the campaign to bring the killers of ambassador chris stevens to justice. obviously that hasn't happened yet. even though these are very different attacks, when you look back historically, the attack on the "uss cole" took about two years to get an arrest in that case. khalid sheikh mohammed was arrested about a year after the attacks on september 11th. so sometimes those arrests and investigations do take time, but one
